My HD1000 will not power on anymore. Does anyone know if there is a fuse inside? Any other thoughts on what the problem could be?

Oh well, time to go shopping. At least there are more to choose from these days.

Thanks.

Roku has been pretty short on info about the issues surrounding the power supply. People have waited as much as SIX WEEKS for even the most minimum of response from Roku on hardware problems. Who knows who many people have just given up and dumped one in the trash for the lack of vendor support. It would be great for the future of the device if SOMEONE who has a bit of electrical savvy and an out-of-warranty unit would open one up and do some documenting (maybe there IS a fuse on the power supply circuit board, maybe an alternate power supply source could be located, etc.). Lots of products (even ones with stellar manufacturer support) have vibrant communities of unofficial support along these lines, but SO FAR that sort of user support has only really materialized on the software side. I'd try to start something, but even though support has been minimal I'm still hesitant to open mine up while still under warranty.

You also add my Rev B to the list. Purchased 1/19/05 and died on 2/13/06. Awaiting response from Roku support.

Has anyone with an out-of-warranty Rev B unit opened it up and taken a picture of the internals? I would be curious to see what the differences are between Rev A and Rev B, and if the power supply looks identical.
